.NET from a VB6 developers perspective...

There are numerous times I've wanted to go back to the familiar, but the
quest for solutions (or perhaps just something new to learn) has kept me
moving forward with .NET.

For all of those VB developers out there in the trenches with unrealistic
deadlines always looming, stick with it -- don't give up. .NET can seem
intimidating at first -- but that very intimidation also provides the
rewards in flexibility and power. I do not pretend to know it all, still
just scratching the surface of .NET, but some very useful books that I found
to really address my issues:

Microsoft Press
Upgrading VB6 to Microsoft VB.NET (Ed Robinson, Michael Bond, Robert Ian
ADO.NET (David Sceppa)
VB.NET Programmer's Cookbook (Matthew MacDonald)
101 VB.NET Application (Sean Campbell, ...)

I hope Microsoft stay with .NET and just keep refining and expanding upon
it. Sure .NET has some issues, but they don't require a fundamental shift.
My only request, is please keep this technology alive for at least 5 years
before switching to a completely new and different technology.
